to help?\

Subject: [Medfem-l] Tuscan herb

I had a question about a medieval herb name "herbe toscane" that is 
known to have healing powers.
I found a mention of this herb in a French medieval romance called 
"L'atre perilleux".
A woman healer uses "l'herbe toscane" to heal a knight's wounded arm.

I am not sure if anyone has seen a reference to this herb anywhere else.

I apologize if this topic is not directly related to feminist studies 
of the MA.
It is in my case related to women healers in medieval fiction.

Any help will be greatly welcomed.
